The web appbuilder dashboard theme won't configure the chosen layout. Rather, it places all widgets on the right-hand side of the application. I've tried moving them around, this does not work, I've also tried changing between layouts, this too does not work. What could I be doing wrong here?
If you see below, the initial picture shows the dashboard layout where instead of having the widgets around the map, the are all placed to the right of the map. I can't even reconfigure them as I could in previous versions. I even thought of reconfiguring them via code or something, but I am not so knowledgeable in that sphere.
I realize this is an older thread, but it appeared so I thought I would try and assist.
In the first screenshot, are you sure you selected the ArcGIS Web AppBuilder dashboard theme? When configuring the app, when you select the dashboard theme, you should see this:
Notice the widgets are "opened" and appear along the left and bottom "sides" of the map.
FYI, the second screenshot is actually a dashboard built with ArcGIS Dashboards and not ArcGIS Web AppBuilder. The former provides many more options for configuring a dashboard, including more "complex" element layouts.
Hope this helps,
